I have an old PC that doesn't work with CD/DVD drives and cannot boot from USB. I've removed the hard drive, installed it as slave on my Windows 7 PC, and formatted and copied the Windows XP installation folder to the slave hard drive.
However I don't know what I should do next to make the slave hard drive be bootable, so that I can start the Windows XP installation via DOS commands.
I've tried running "format e: /s" and "sys e:" on the command line but they don't work (I think that Microsoft removed them from Windows 7.) In Windows Explorer, right-clicking and choosing to format doesn't seem to have any options to transfer the system.
How can I solve this? Am I missing something, or should I use a third party tool?
